OUR WORK, OUR VISION

914UNITED Inc. presents the 2021 Youth Leadership Development Initiative. This initiative includes workshops regarding manhood training, financial literacy, & civic empowerment. As an incentive, it provides internships in various professions as well as gift sponsorships from local establishments and community organizations--proffering committed participants free services to personal care, entertainment, adventures, and more. In addition, we're dedicated to providing the proper support to returning citizens. We envision a society where positive mentors offset negative environmental influences; where the underprivileged communities receive the institutional and community support in navigating life challenges; where retributive justice no longer exist.

OUR VALUES

Inspired by the belief that we must help one another, we value the role of community support in uplifting those in need. No greater value exists than caring for the less fortunate. It is with the mindset of WE that build communities and improve the welfare of the people.

THE CO-FOUNDER & DIRECTOR

PROFESSIONAL & PASSIONATE

A dedicated community servant, Jonathan Alvarez is a Youth Advocate and Community Activist in the City of Yonkers. He’s a 32-year-old life-long Yonkers resident who promotes the philosophy that change agents, change narratives. After serving a 13-year prison term, he returned home with a mission to give back to the same community he once negatively impacted. He is motivated by his transformative experiences within the criminal justice system. At age 17, he went away with a tenth-grade education. During his incarceration, however, he acquired a GED and later achieved a Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies from the Bard Prison Initiative program. His educational journey and personal metamorphosis have inspired him to be a productive contribution to society.

THE CO-FOUNDER & TREASURER

DEDICATED & DETERMINED

John Cabrera is a life-long Yonkers resident who cares for community and for those in need. His drive to serve others stems from an understanding of family support. During his adolescent years, he nearly spiraled down the wrong path by flirting with the street life and consequently expriencing a overnight stay at the city jail for a low-level crime. But friends and family steered him in the right direction. He completed High School and moved on to study Business Management at Monroe College and then transitioned into Mechanical Engineering at Manhattan College. Due to the birth of his first child, John had to leave school to take care of his family. His crutch during this pivotal moment - beside family - was the church. It was at this time that he adopted the Christain faith more devotedly than ever and experienced the true meaning of giving back. He volunteered his time in the capacity of Young Adult and Outreach Leader at Harvest Fields Community Church, conducting community outreach to the youth and the homelessness.
